Android versions...Spanish bibles

Comment by calvinanderson
about e-Sword Sep 2016

I see many Bible apps that look real good, but I have found none like E-sword for windows (my main Win Bible) that has so many Spanish versions available. On Android I use Olive Tree Bible Study primarily, but sometimes it is slow and was looking for another with many downloadable Spanish Bibles available. As a missionary in Mexico, that is my need.
